My Students

Our school is an urban high school. I teach social studies in a low income, urban district in Connecticut where there is a great focus on students completing high school in four years and becoming college and career ready.

There is a learning curve for students as they begin to figure out who they are and how they fit into high school and eventually determine who they want to become.

Some students really struggle with this and run the risk of becoming disengaged from the classroom and the school community.

As a teacher, I strive to provide a welcoming, comfortable environment for my students. This involves building strong relationships with my students and providing them with the support and materials they need to be successful and stay engaged.

My Project

This year, I am piloting an 11th and 12th grade class called "Crimes Against Humanity," which is focused on Human Rights issues around the world. In many ways, it has been a continuation of the 9th grade World History class I teach as we have looked at the background of the development of human rights and will be studying modern genocides. I am continually looking for new movies and documentaries to have available and share with my class.

These documentaries and historical dramas will help provide a window into the issues or events we are examining.

My students will be able to listen to people talk about their experiences with issues such as civil rights, immigration and human trafficking through the use of documentaries. They will also be able to view historical dramas and other films related to topics we are studying in World History and Crimes Against Humanity, such as the "Zookeeper's Wife" or "The Last King of Scotland".
